Resources Center (LRC) is located in the third floor of 
the Library. This new Center resulted from increasing 
recognition that the learning conditions required for 
each student may be different due to the uniqueness of 
individuals. The mission of the Learning Resource 
Center is to create conditions which allow the various 
mixes of human and non-human resources to focus upon 
individualized learning. 

The LRC attempts to accomplish its mission in 
several ways. First, it provides curriculum materials 
such as films, computer programs, filmstrips, audio and 
video tapes, and curriculum kits. Next, it helps create 
learning spaces that foster independent study, such as 
small group activities, human and non-human tutoring, 
and large-group interaction. In addition, the LRC 
renders assistance to faculty members by helping to 
improve instructional design and by providing research 
and development services to improve instruction and 
learning. The LRC is home to the Reading Center and 
Writing Skills Center. 

READING CENTER-Programs offered at the Reading 
Center are designed to meet the needs of all students. 
Enrichment programs are available for slow readers 
with good comprehension who want to increase their 
speed. Developmental programs, concentrating on 
comprehension skills, help students understand what 
they read. Additionally, study skills programs, 
centering on taking effective lecture notes and reading 
textbooks efficiently, are offered. Students may enroll in 
a reading program at any time and select hours 
convenient to their schedule of courses. There is no 
charge for these programs. 

WRITING SKILLS CENTER-The Writing Skills Center 
is a developmental program designed for self-instruction 
in the areas of spelling, grammar, and composition 
structure. It was established in the Fall of 1976 as the 
need was recognized to assist students who 
demonstrated difficulty with the basics of writing 
Through instructor or self-referral, students come to the 
Center and are diagnostically tested to target the areas 
of greatest need. From these results, the student is 
directed in a program tailored to meet particular ne-

The Inter-Varsity Christian Fellowship is one of many 
fellowships across the nation. We believe the following: 

1. We base our beliefs on the truth and sovereignty of 
God's Word, the Bible. 

2. We believe in the mystery of the Trinity, three 
persons in one, God the Father, Jesus the Son and 
the Holy Spirit. 

3. We believe in the historical human Christ and in 
His divine resurrection as the one way for sinful 
man to receive forgiveness, through a personal 
acceptance of Christ's death, and by this acceptance 
to enter into fellowship with God. 

We have many plans in progress. We have a retreat 
planned for September. There will be mountain climbs, 
dinners and lots of get-together activities. We will have 
weekly meetings with different speakers. This past year 
we have had such topics as "Psychology and Jesus," 
"What can a Volunteer Fireman Do For Jesus?" and 
many such others. You also will be able to join different 
Bible Studies such as New Life in Christ and others for 
personal growth in Christ. 

Our fellowship is set up in the form of committees. They

teaching, discipleship and exhortation. All people will 
be encouraged to join a committee and be allowed to be 
as involved as much as he/she desires.

this organization, which are shared by all the members, 
and to which they strive, are: excellence in professional 
nursing and leadership in all aspects of their lives. The 
local chapter governs itself by an elected executive 
board. Because we believe that one day this chapter will 
be recognized nationally by the National Nursing Honor 
Society, Sigma Theta Tau, the society follows its 
guidelines for bylaws.

means are its activities limited to members alone.

to encourage socialization among the nursing students 
and members of the faculty. Some of these past 
activities have included food and toy drives for the 
needy, screening for lead paint in children, and a 
"Cancer Day" sponsored in conjunction with the 
Amercian Cancer Society, in order to educate students, 
faculty members, and members of the community about 
the prevention and detection of cancer.

and community. 

Currently, our membership consists of 60 students. Our

guest speakers, the annual Sociology Day and various 
community action projects. Recently, we were chosen as 
the steering committee for the student chapter of the 
Mass. Sociological Association. In this capacity, we will

Government and other academic organizations to

Special Education Club 

The Special Education Club offers many opportunities 
for college students to become involved in working with 
exceptional children and adults. As Freshmen, you will 
not be taking any professional courses, therefore, it is 
very important that you keep in mind the opportunities 
the Club can give you. We need volunteers in many 
areas, as well as constant input on what you would like 
to see the Club doing to benefit your experiences. 

Some of the programs that you can participate in are: 
Big Brother/ Big Sister - where you become the Big 
Brother or Sister to a special needs child. There is an 
Exceptional Girl Scout Troop that needs volunteers to 
help the girls with badges, camping trips, and other 
exciting activities. Once a month, there is a dance at the 
Templeton Colony for retarded men, which is a great 
time for all involved (guys included!!). Volunteers are 
also needed to work at a yearly Cerebral Palsy Telethon, 
taking pledges over the phone and raising money. The 
Club itself intends to run many fund-raising activities 
and we need all the help that you have to offer. There 
are Adult Education classes where you can aid in 
teaching social skills. We have a variety of programs to 
offer for anyone who is willing to get involved.

Women's Chorus 

This Chorus is a group of young women, meeting each 
Monday at 4:00 P.M. Directed by Dr. Richard Kent, their 
purpose is to perform at the twice yearly concerts by the 
Music Department, while gaining a valuable background 
in choral works. 

Women's Co-op 

Our goals are to provide friendship and support to 
women on campus and to strengthen channels of 
communication among women. We hope to accomplish 
these goals by involving women of the college 
community in various activities and providing 
information and support to the campus at large. 

Some of our activities will include: on- and off-campus 
lectures, a Women's Coop newsletter, a drop-in place for 
women to share ideas and concerns and films. Input 
from women on campus has in the past and will in the 
future provide us with a large variety of topics. Some of 
these have been: health, sex stereotypes, rape, abortion, 
marriage and the status of women on campus. 

Our organization is set up in steering committees that 
are responsible for events, facilities, resources and 
public relations. We are a cooperative group in that 
each member has an equal amount of responsibility for, 
and input into the group activities. We have many plans 
and expectations for next year and welcome all students 
and faculty to join us in acheiving our goals.

Fenwick Society 



The Adelphian Society was founded in 1949. The club 
was formed for the purpose of uniting girls of similar 
interests and objectives in a cohesive organization 
whose purposes are twofold: one, to further the 
development of the individual member by supplying 
beneficial activities; and two, to develop the individual 
to be an active and influential part of the College.
